I’m all for easy and I’m all for delicious. When they combine it turns into this glorious moment I never want to forget. Because lets be honest, those few moments of easy and delicious that happen throughout the day are rare and sacred. Given that I’ve most likely wiped more snotty noses and changed more dirty pants than I’d like to admit. Not to mention the fights, scrubbing pen off the wall and cleaning up spills.
So yes, delicious food that doesn’t take 30 different pans and over 30 minutes is my kind of food.
And because I know I’m not alone in this busy world, I bring you the easiest 30 minute baked fajita recipe ever. Like ever, ever.
Seriously though, juicy strips of protein (you’re choice) combined with sweet caramelized onions and peppers that you didn’t have to saute equals absolute perfection. But the best part is once you bake this sheet pan meal there are a billion different ways you could serve it. Or better yet, let each family member choose for themselves how they’d like it. Maybe we should call this the ultimate fajita bar.
But in all honesty, aren’t these the best meals? The ones where you cook the main dish and let everyone get involved by dressing their own up just the way they like it. It’s a great way to end the food fights and also why I like meals made for a bowl and all things taco Tuesday. You should try it out for yourself.
Obviously I could go on and on about savory flavor and the ease at which you can make this recipe, which is about to take over your meal plans for the month, but I’ll spare you. Because let’s be honest we can only talk about the bold, beautiful color of the peppers and the perfect caramelization of the meat so long before you shut me off for the day and hope that I never talk about such things for so long again.
So I’m moving on to bigger and better things.
Yes, it does get better.
This recipe is cleanse approved. Gasp, jaw hits the floor, sobbing with excitement. I know, I know I am SO excited as well. There are a lot of reasons. One is simply because when most people think of a cleanse they think, liquid diet, bland, boring and awful tasting potions. I promise you there, is a new way to cleanse, insert THE SIMPLE CLEANSE, and it tastes so much better than you can imagine.
You see, the purpose of a cleanse is not to get rid of the junk using more pills than you will ever take in your entire life and horrible tasting food but rather it is eliminating the junk that backs you up, creating a clean life with a clean diet that you enjoy. Something you can take and do for the rest of your life. And this my friends is how you detox like a boss.
If done right cleansing is completely and 100% safe, even for children (that is with the new way to detox). It won’t make you become BFF’s with the bathroom, make you lose your mind, starve yourself to the point of bingeing or make you even question the very essence of life.
My friends, your time is now, to learn the NEW way to detox and it starts with a simple change, every day that keeps moving you in the right direction. It’s a change in attitude, in mindset, and in understanding that the quality of foods matter more than the quantity. The fact in understanding that your body is not defined by a set of numbers.
I promise, it really easy and I know it will make you feel amazing. It is so simple you are crazy not to jump on board.
